The Alabama Regional Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (BPH) serves patrons in 63 of Alabama’s counties. Remaining counties in the state are served by two subregional libraries that work cooperatively with BPH to provide National Library Service (NLS) materials for patrons in their local service areas. The Huntsville subregional library is located within the Huntsville Madison County Main Library and serves patrons in Madison County. A second subregional is located on the Alabama Institute for the Blind campus in Talladega and serves patrons in the tri-county area of Calhoun, St. Clair and Talladega. Patrons may choose from a wide variety of recreational and basic informational talking books, which are available on digital cartridges or for download by the patrons themselves. Braille and Web-Braille titles are available as well. A wide variety of magazines are available on digital cartridge or through download. NLS maintains its Online Catalog of all titles available (more than 87,000 titles in September 2017) for loan through its holdings and by interlibrary loan through other network libraries.
